Brides and Grooms are opting to have their wedding overseas. It is the new trend which incorporates a wedding with your honeymoon in an exotic location.
Trying to organize an overseas wedding can seem daunting and costly, however with the help of a wedding coordinator/ planner who specializes in romantic wedding destinations all over the globe it can be simpler than having a wedding in OZ. With the average cost of weddings in Australia at between $30-$40 thousand dollars and overseas wedding can be more cost effective with wedding and honeymoon packages starting at less than ten thousand dollars.
A wedding planner/ coordinator may be the essential ingredient in organizing your overseas wedding. They will take care of all wedding licenses, they also have connections with photographers, venues, florists and all the other necessities you will require on the day. For your guests the wedding planner can liaise with a travel agent so that the guests will be located in the same hotel/resort or in close proximity to the wedding and can take advantage of any group discounts you may have arranged.
One of the disadvantages of having your wedding overseas is the guests. Generally speaking you will not have the same attendance with an overseas wedding as you would at home.
